    File does not exist

    Marc, I think Photos names full resolution versions of downloaded files from iCloud Photo Library as "fullsizeoutput_***.jpeg". You can verify that by right clicking on a picture in the image list/bin area and select Open File Location in the popup menu. It will show the file in Preview. Did you add the files from Photos using the file browser inside VideoPad (e.g. by clicking the Add File toolbar button) or by drag and drop from Photos? If the former, VideoPad will directly refer and use the original file inside the Photos library. If using the drag and drop from Photos I suggest to select the 'Move to folder' option in the dialog that shows up after the drop. Select a folder where the dropped files will be copied to. Otherwise the files will be copied to a subfolder inside /Users/<username>/Library/Containers/com.nchsoftware.videopad/Data/Library/Caches. For the drag and drop option VideoPad will just use the copied files (whether in the user chosen folder or in the Caches folder) and not the original inside the Photos library. It's just Apple's way of doing drag and drop from Photos

    Marc, are you using the Mac App Store version? If yes, in future edits please also try copying your media files to your Movies folder. You can place them in any sub-folder inside your /Users/username/Movies folder. Then add them to VideoPad from there

    Debut doesn't reconize builtin Camera in MacBook Pro

    1. What is the OSX version? 2. What is the exact Macbook Pro version? 3. Does the camera work in other apps like QuickTime or Skype? 4. Does the camera work in VideoPad (http://nchsoftware.com/videopad/) using Record -> Record Video ?
  8. Hi Roger. What version of VideoPad Mac are you using? Latest version is 5.30 which you can get from http://nchsoftware.com/videopad/vpmaci.zip . Please try it if you're using an older version

    CREATING DVD

    Hi John Are you using the Windows or the Mac version? For either case, an alternative is to export to an ISO image file, and then use another program like ExpressBurn (http://www.nch.com.au/burn/index.html) to burn the ISO to the disc Lou

    Cannot burn to disc

    Hi Marty, I'm in charge of PhotoStage Mac but looks like you're using the Win version. You could try exporting to an ISO image file, and then use another Windows program like ExpressBurn (http://www.nch.com.au/burn/index.html) to burn the ISO to the disc Lou

    Exported video is different from preview

    Does the problem happen for other export formats like ogv, mkv, mpg, flv? An updated Mac version will hopefully be released by next week. In the meantime I've uploaded a development version to https://www.dropbox.com/s/c8hcaqzgplikojy/VideoPad.zip?dl=0 which you could try to see if this problem is fixed

    Snapshot script not working as expected

    Try changing the script to the following: #!/bin/bash echo “About to launch Debut and take a snapshot!” /Applications/Debut.app/Contents/MacOS/Debut -snapshot -source "webcam" -ms 1000 & sleep 15 /Applications/Debut.app/Contents/MacOS/Debut -exit For the periodic recording every 10 minutes, you can create a launchd plist and use launchctl to load/unload it. Example: 1. Create a debutlauncher.plist text file in your /Users/<username>/Library/LaunchAgents folder with following contents. Where /Users/myusername/Documents/debutlauncher.sh is the absolute path to the script above <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>debutlauncher</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/Users/myusername/Documents/debutlauncher.sh</string> </array> <key>StartInterval</key> <integer>600</integer> </dict> </plist> 2. In Terminal, cd to the /Users/<username>/Library/LaunchAgents folder then run 'launchctl load debutlauncher.plist' 3. If you want to remove the scheduler run 'launchctl unload debutlauncher.plist' in the same folder
